It is just one day left to the fateful three cannon shots that in Viareggio mean the start of the Carnival: a month of joy, magic, colours and fun. Everything is almost ready for the 145th edition: the promenade will host the parades where the giant masks will come to life as if by magic among movements, music and dancing. A real show that every year reinvents itself and fascinates all the spectators.
With nine first-class allegorical floats, five second-class floats, nine group masks and nine isolated masks, Viareggio, the capital of the Italian Carnival, gives appointment to five masked parades:
First masked parade
Saturday 27th January at 4:00 pm at the end fireworks
Second masked parade
Sunday 4th February at 3:00 p.m.
Third masked parade
Sunday 11th February at 3:00 p.m.
Fourth masked parade
Tuesday 13th February at 5:00 p.m.
Fifth masked parade
Saturday 17th February at 5:00 p.m. - At the end of the parade verdicts of the juries and great ending fireworks
The start of the Carnival does not include only the famous masked parades, but also night parties, fireworks shows,balls, theatrical events, gastronomic events and major world sporting events.
Of particular significance are the neighbourhood parties, evenings in the square and afternoon events that enrich the Carnival program. The first big party is organized by the Croce Verde, which has chosen Piazza Burlamacco as location by the Cittadella of the Carnival. The event is scheduled for Sunday 28th January from 3 p.m.
On Friday 2nd, Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th February, the Marco Polo District will be the star of the second weekend of Carnival. Moreover Saturday 3rd February from 15.30 p.m the Rione Torre del Lago organizes a masked party for children in the Great Open Air Theatre "Giacomo Puccini". For the little ones the traditional appointment of Giovedì Grasso will take place under the Matilde Tower, in Via Regia. On Thursday 8th February the Vecchia Viareggio District will organize an afternoon party from 2.30 p.m.
Five great bacchanal evenings with CarnevalDarsena are scheduled for Friday 9th, Saturday 10th, Sunday 11th, Monday 12th and Tuesday 13th February. From 7 p.m. the kitchens of via Coppino will prepare the extraordinary typical dishes of Viareggio and the music will involve everyone.
